  The role of vibrato in the aesthetic of blended choral singing
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr H Daffern
Applications accepted all year round
A fundamental aspect of good choral singing identified by performers, directors, critics and theorists is the concept of blend. Blend is a term that has essentially come to encompass all aspects of singing that lead to a sound in which no one voice is distinguishable from another.
  ‘Vowel matching’ in chorus singing
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr H Daffern
Applications accepted all year round
Modifying vowels is a common technique employed by singers when singing as a group to maximise the blended quality of the sound. Whilst there is natural variation of vowels between speakers and singers, a conscious effort is made to match the quality of vowels between singers.
  The relationship of an accompanist, their instrument and the voice in sung solo performances
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr H Daffern
Applications accepted all year round
This project will consider the relationship of a singer with their accompaniment, including the musical relationship between the two performers and the direct but perhaps unconscious impact of the spectral characteristics of the accompanying force(s) on vocal production.
  Augmented a shared environment to support creativity
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof J A Robinson
Applications accepted all year round
The University’s "immersive demonstration space" provides surround video and sound in a meeting-room environment. This research project is to determine how best to enhance and use the space to support collaborative design and creativity.
  Virtual acoustic simulation for auralisation
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Murphy
Applications accepted all year round
Auralisation is the audio equivalent of visualisation – the accurate rendering of an acoustic environment such that the listener perceives the result as being natural or real.
  Soundscape analysis and auralisation
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Murphy
Applications accepted all year round
Traditional research in auralisation focuses on the development of sound propagation and rendering algorithms for bounded geometries – that is, rooms, halls or any form of enclosed space.
  Interactive spatial audio rendering
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Murphy
Applications accepted all year round
Developments in measuring the acoustic characteristics of concert halls and opera houses are leading to standardized methods of impulse response capture for a wide variety of auralisation applications, including many surround-sound formats.
  Auralisation in digital heritage
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Murphy
Applications accepted all year round
Graphical virtualization techniques have been used for some time in the fields of archaeology, history, and heritage, offering better understanding and experience of past environments while also facilitating more effective user interaction.
  Soundfield analysis and synthesis using higher order ambisonics
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round
Ambisonics is a spatial audio capture and reproduction system that has been utilised since the 1970’s, primarily for music reproduction, but has of late gained significant interest in broadcast, gaming and interactive immersive video frameworks.
  Influence of listener movement on tonality and spatial quality in adaptive immersive surround sound systems
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round
Whilst there is a significant body of work that focuses on the spatial quality and tonality of immersive surround sound systems for a sweet spot position, these qualities under a dynamic listening scenario (i.e.
